Riverfest PA

Event Details

Jun 25 - Jun 26

Riverfest commemorates the burning of the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge during the Civil War. On the last Sunday in June 1863, locals prevented Confederate troops from crossing the river and moving toward Harrisburg or Philadelphia. Confederate troops were forced to turn back and just three days later, the Battle of Gettysburg erupted.

Participate in fun events such as run & paddle challenges, biking along the river trails, an outdoor rec expo and more.
